A swirl of dust on the land
Just a little more than I planned
A wish in a well
A long, yet delicious spell
And the world that suddenly turned green.
A frog laid up on a pad
Life altering something so sad
A tornado that endures to the end
A tree that breaks, but doesn’t bend.
And a system that desires your fall.
Hues of yellow hit your pillow at night
You have nobody to hold you tight.
As convenient as you were yesterday
It isn’t so fun when he decides to play.
And a life so off course you get numb.
She is the rain that pours down your body
The life you want to embody
She’s the storm and all its aftermath
The beauty of a naked bath
And the tornado that fucks it all up.
She doesn’t fulfill all the desires you need
She’s a mess with a shameless deed
You’ll give her your trust
She’ll cry if she must
And the tears you’ll keep for posterity.
You will shake your head and wonder about her
The stillness will take over and it will all be a blur
Then you’ll remember that sometimes
Life just happens
Even to other people.
